Take a Word has been in the art challenge business for over eight years. Sadly, it seems that challenges aren't as popular as they used to be and numbers are dwindling as valued artists have left to follow other opportunities. We've been so fortunate to have shared our challenges with talented and generous participants from all forms of art - stamping, card-making, crafts, mixed media and digital art. Our aim has always been to provide a place for artists to publish their work and make connections with like-minded people. Now we would appreciate your comments on the future of challenges and also your ideas as to improvements that could be made to attract new artists and to persuade our loyal participants to stay. We are always grateful for theme suggestions.
My email address is on the right-hand side bar of the Take a Word web page. I look forward to hearing from you.
NOTE TO OUR ARTISTS:
I’m sure you all have noticed the absence of Marie (Ozstuff) in the last couple of weeks. Marie is recuperating from major surgery. In the interim, Ann and Bev will keep our Three Muses, Take a Word and Digitalmania challenges up and running. We know you join us in sending Marie our thoughts and wishes for a speedy recovery.
UPDATE 8/30: Marie's recovery is going well. It is expected she'll be transferred to rehab any day now. Your notes of encouragement are being relayed to her!
UPDATE 9/3: Marie continues to make a slow recovery. Your notes of encouragement have been copied into a document and are being relayed to her. We all thank you for your concern.
UPDATE 9/10: Good news! Marie has been transferred to Rehab. We wish her well on this, the hard part of her recovery.
